At HomeRun.com we’re growing our elite engineering team to keep up with the surging demand for our leading e-commerce platform in the white-hot “group-buying” space. In under a year, our talented team of less than 10 engineers has built the technology that each day powers thousands of offer configurations, millions of sent emails, and an embedded platform that brings our deals to 100’s of millions of users across some of the world’s largest content, community, financial, travel, and social sites.
We have built the platform powering offers for HomeRun (our direct to consumer  site), Facebook, Google, YellowPages, Chase, American Express, and many more brands you know and use today.
To further solidify this leading position and accelerate growth into the Fortune 500, HomeRun recently merged with Rearden Commerce. Rearden brings an exciting upcoming portfolio of partners, massive financial resources, and cutting-edge targeting technology that will be game-changing in the offers landscape. We could not be more excited, as we are now uniquely positioned to become the largest offers provider in the world.
What you’ll be responsible for
  • Designing and building core platform components such as viral invite mechanisms, a deal optimization engine, card-linked offer infrastructure, and more. 
  • Distilling down extremely complex ecosystems to create simple, elegant solutions.
  • Developing new features for our framework leveraging multiple front-end rails apps that communicate via restful APIs to our back-end servers (Sequel/Redis/Riak-backed).
  • Optimizing and advancing the consumer experience and feature set on HomeRun.com and the offer programs of many of our other large scale channel partners.
What will be expected of you
  • Writing, pushing, reviewing, testing, and deploying new code on a daily basis.
  • Architecting web, mobile, and API services for extreme scale, performance, availability.
  • Making high level platform decisions that allow for flexible and reusable code.
  • Having the flexibility to change gears quickly, adapt rapidly, and perform under pressure.
Why you should be excited
  • You’ll learn from thought leaders in: e-commerce, viral engineering, data analytics, game mechanics, mobile, cloud-based scaling, databases, and more (all under one roof).
  • Your colleagues will be top-tier product and engineering talent who’ve had backgrounds at Twitter, Bebo, Slide, VMWare, EngineYard, Y-Combinator, and other elite startups. 
  • From an engineering perspective, you will learn at a vicious pace on today’s leading/bleeding edge technologies like Rails3, Riak, CoffeeScript, and more.
  • Your first day you’ll push code affecting millions of consumers and small businesses.
  • You will have fun every single day. Come work with us for a day, in SF or remote, to try us out. We challenge you to find a company more intense and more fun. It’s not possible.
What we’re looking for
  • You love learning and pick things up fast.  If you don’t know something, you’ll ask a few questions and self-teach. In doing so, your communication is concise but productive.
  • You enjoy writing elegant code.  Currently we are using mostly Ruby and JavaScript.
  • You have experience with web development, software design patterns, and can write readable, maintainable code. Having coded and deployed at scale is a big plus.
  • You take pride in your work and deeply care about the resulting experience. Millions of consumers and merchants around the globe will use and rely on your product.
Technologies (not all are required but more is better):
  • Ruby, Rails3
  • Redis, Riak, MySQL

  • HTML (HAML), JavaScript (jQuery, CoffeeScript), CSS (SASS)
  • Rest APIs, Async Processing (Resque)

  • Plenty of drinks, snacks, and Red Bull to keep you going
  • Spontaneous StarCraft 2 matches (and yes, we’re pretty good)
